High powered Australian Rock Band [JAK] Live To Rock Another Day!
[JAK] Artist Bio
Who IS JAK?: Since its inception in 2010 high-energy Australian rock band JAK have rapidly become known for their dynamic shows wowing Australian audiences with no-holds-barred performances. Drawing influences from Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Stone Temple Pilots and early Guns ‘n Roses, JAK are an original hard rock band. JAK were ‘LOUD’ competition Grand Finalists and have shared the stage with iconic act The Radiators.
JAK HISTORY: In 2009 front man Andrew Hands, having formed Red Light Runners reconnected with long-time friend, bassist Pat Burger later teaming up with skins-man Craig Dockray, JAK evolved. Andrew - “We’ve been steadily working towards building a solid foundation for this band from day one, to create a Rock show that will blow people away and leave them demanding more!” With the recent addition of dynamic guitarist Zac Bentley, they have become a rock machine! JAK currently receive airplay in Australia, USA, UK, Ireland, Scotland, El Salvador, Lebanon, Romania, Serbia, and were featured Band of the Week on Recharged Radio Perth, giving meaning to the phrase - ‘Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it!’
WHAT NEXT?: Having literally outgrown standard venues JAK’s focus is on big-stage events and working on getting their single ‘California Haze’ out there and introducing their upcoming debut Album ‘Machine In Me’ to a wide audience. Embarking on a unique self-generated Australian Regional TOUR in May 2013, JAK has created a massive project with the intention of sharing their passion for live music and supporting young unknown artists, highlighting local talent in the more remote areas of inland Australia.
VISION: With bigger goals in mind and a firm grip on why they are compelled to play music JAK are forging ahead. With an invitation to play in China later this year and plans to play in Japan in 2014, JAK are unflinchingly optimistic and committed to actualising their vision – “to resurrect gritty flamboyant original hard rock shows, with quality musicianship.” JAK’s members, equally passionate about the band’s direction agree - “We want to play in as many places around the world as we can."
PRODUCTION - and other stories: These guys don't just do gigs, a lot of planning and effort goes into the design and execution of their shows. Andrew - “We hunger for playing live, sharing music and entertaining people is a powerful drug, we love writing music and we live for rock ‘n’ roll!” With JAK about to embark on their ‘HOMELAND’ tour through three states, taking them on the road for four months, there’s no need to wonder what JAK is up to, pretty soon they will be hard to miss!
